jseabolt Posted April 3, 2012 Share Posted April 3, 2012 (edited) It's been awhile since I've been on here. Due to personal issues my wife and I had to give away our three African Greys a couple of years ago. We could not find buyers for them so we took them back to the pet store and they could not find buyers either and had to forefit them for room and board. Despite being my wife's birds, it broke my heart to see them go because I had become attached to them and they took up with me. My father built this aviary for them as a Christmas present for my wife and since not having the birds it has been in storage in our basement. Since we have no plans on getting any more parrots, we desperatly need the storage space in our basement. It measures 90" long X 70" high X 33" deep. it is made of oak and it very heavy. The front doors have glass inserts. The top and sides are covered with wire mesh and the sides with covered with plexiglass. The bottom has cleanout drawers. This isn't the best design for an aviary. My father built it based on what he thought it should be. There are gaps around the cleanout drawers but these could be covered with plywood and the dropping swept out. I repaired one of the drawers but the other one may need some work. The birds have chewed through the wire mesh but this can easily be replaced. The plexiglass was installed after the fact to cut down on bird dander. As you know parrots like the chew on things so there are bite marks on the inside but the exterior is in great shape. There might possibly be a nest box to go with it if I can find it. it would not take much to modify this aviary to suit your needs. I would like $800 for this aviary but will not refuse any resonable offers. Since my father put several weeks of time into making this for my wife, I would feel really guilty hauling this to the dump if I could not find a buyer. It does not include any toys or branches you see in the photo. I think my wife gave these to the pet store in exhange for keeping the birds. But you are welcome to any branches you may see on my property to take with you. I live just outside of Kingsport TN which is on the TN/VA state line. Zip: 37645. My cell number is 423-765-3722. If you have any questions you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my cell and leave a message and I will return your call. Thank you.
